This was our first night in Sri Lanka. They also picked us up from the airport ($20) very efficiently and drove us there in a new AC hybrid car. We had an AC room too which was good for the first night. All clean and felt safe and comfortable. We only stayed the one night but had no issues at... More

I spent two weeks in Sri Lanka and my first night in "ocean view" hotel. The owner is full of kindness and very helpful. It was really comforting. He offered me to pick me and my friend to the airport. The day after we booked a car with him and he drived us to Sigirya. It was a very long... More

We spend here our last 2 nights here and had so much fun. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff in extremely nice and funny. We are budget travellers and this was really good choice to end our trip in Sri Lanka.

Propper rooms near okay beach. We stay two nights. "Ocean View" is more marketing than true but still the beach is near. 20 mins with tuktuk from airport. Warm shower water and comfort bed. What else do you need? Restaurants and little shops can be found less than 20 meters.

My partner and I stayed here as our first stop in Sri Lanka. Guest house was extremely clean and safe. We chose a room with aircon and it worked very well. Would recommend this place for solo female travellers. The owner Mark was extremely reliable and very prompt in returning any emails. Fantastic staff who were attentive and helpful. Drivers... More

This guest house was everything I needed: comfortable, clean and peaceful. And I like the location because it's closer to town - walking distance in fact. Also I needed a ride to Colombo and this was arranged without a hitch. They have been in business since a long time, the drivers are certified chauffeur guides, and I feel that I... More

Possible to book in advance with internet, no charge. Nice and discreet people, clean room, bathroom large enough. Good breakfast, the kind of breakfast you would have during your stay. Can be drop at the airport. We came twice and can compare with others, we do recommend this hotel.
